The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a web server working in case there are troubles with the main power supply - an outage or shaky current that can't keep the web server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery that is connected to the server and to the electricity network all the time, so in case of any disruption, it is already operating, which enables the web server to carry on working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electric power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty that we provide is, partly, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we provide shared hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it will be created on a modern cloud platform that consists of many clusters handling your content. Each machine in the given cluster features its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until a number of electric power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole center to stay functional for several hours. You won't notice anything even in case there is an interruption, because our backup units can easily power each of the devices and we won't have to reduce the amount of working web servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your Internet sites.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated server accounts we provide you with are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electric power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our innovative website hosting platform and the network which deals with all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to each hosting server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to deliver electric power for the whole data center for several hours with no need to minimize the power consumption or the productivity of any web server or network device, so even when there is a disruption, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be available without disruptions and will operate at top speed.
